Original text on this topic:
Twenty years ago the rhino was still common over Borneo. Within living memory it came down into village areas and did damage in the ricefields of the Kelabit plateau. Now there are probably not more than two or three in Sarawak ; none in Brunei ; some reported in east of North Borneo ; and a handful-now heavily threatened in Indonesian territory. I have seen the tracks of two in very wide jungle travels since 1945. But the last was in the forties, and an old track.
